Raul Maldonado, President of the Association of Hospitality of Portugal (AHP), announced that the association has already submitted proposals to the Lisbon municipality to support hotel establishments in the city, how are the rates.
Ao mesmo tempo, warned that the elections cannot serve to justify delays in support for the sector, nomeadamente, the fees.
Em Lisboa, without having tourists, we continue to pay the same fees as if we had. From waste collection, up to IMI or civil protection, public space occupancy rate, entre outras. We need that, facing this fifth wave, we will once again have exemption in a series of fees, explicou o presidente da AHP, adding that incentive measures are still needed for the return of tourists, highlighting the possibility of free public transport or free entry to cultural spaces.
Raul Martins highlighted that the proposals presented have already been delivered to the Chamber and that the president of the municipality, Carlos Coins, confirmed that they were preparing support measures, but did not reveal which. only time passes.
